No:558/23, Response by Aykhan Hajizada, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the question regarding the dispatch of the UN mission to the Garabagh region of Azerbaijan

Question: Recently, we saw information about plans of a possible arrangement of a visit of the UN mission to the Garabagh region of Azerbaijan. How would you comment on this news?


Answer: As it is well-known, for a long period of time, during the occupation of Azerbaijan’s territories by Armenia, the Armenian side has always blocked or restricted international missions from visiting the occupied territories to verify the results of occupation, destruction, illegal activities, including illegal settlements. Moreover, even following limited missions, Armenia either ignored or misinterpreted their findings.


Despite the mentioned inactions, following the anti-terrorism measures conducted several days ago, Azerbaijan has invited relevant UN agencies to visit its Garabagh region. Such a visit will be conducted in the coming days under the auspices of the UN Resident Coordinator in Azerbaijan, in line with the UN-Azerbaijan Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2021-2025).


The visit will create an opportunity to familiarize with the current humanitarian activities of Azerbaijan in the region. Moreover, certain infrastructure restoration, the process of disarmament and seizure of weaponry from illegal Armenian armed forces, and threats emanating from the landmines will be demonstrated to the members of the team.
